Great service and great food
Excellent as usual!
Dinner with my wife. Food was outstanding, and server (“Z”) was absolutely amazing. I’d go back just for the great service, so with great food as well, I’ll absolutely be back next time I’m in Dallas.
As always, service and food were delicious!
This was our first time to visit. We met friends for wine and dinner. The wait staff was friendly and made the dining experience special. The chairs were comfortable and the atmosphere was outstanding. Most of all the food was absolutely delicious. I look forward to dining there again.
As always the food was fantastic - spicy as needed, well balanced and exciting. Our servers Rachel was attentive, suggestive and funny. Always save room for the cotton candy flavor of the day!
Always a favorite - highly recommend. Shinsei is a neighborhood goto that's now in its tenth year!
Great sushi spot. We tried a pressed sushi roll which was delicious. Everything was excellent, except for the timing of the food. They were busy and struggled to bring out our dishes in a timely manner. But, 5/5 on everything else.
Wildly popular, the fare is very good. High quality fish for sashimi and highlights were the chicken lettuce wraps and shrimp dumplings. Unfortunately we were seated next to a large birthday party of sorority sisters who were deafeningly loud.
Always exceptional food, my favorite sushi restaurant in Dallas. The Thai Fried Rice is so delicious and the leftovers are even better the next day.
As always, great food!
Tempura batter way too thick and it was served with soy sauce instead of the classic light dipping sauce. Our order of Brussels sprouts never came. The Peking duck was very average.
Tables are too close to each other and make good dinner conversation impossible.
The food is very good. I recommend lettuce wraps and potstickers for starters , followed by ribs and tempura green beans.
Great dinner and fun night
Love it! Service and food are outstanding and 1/2 bottles of wine on Monday are fun!
Shinsei continues to shine on the Dallas restaurant scene. The sushi is excellent and numerous choices! There is also a wonderful Pan-Asian menu - the black cod might be the best fish in Dallas. Wonderful food. Great Service. Authentic. Consistent. Worth the trip.
Had an amazing anniversary dinner here. Love it!
One of our favorites. High qullaity food and excellent service.
Awesome food and service
Our server Khalil was outstanding! Really went above and beyond to make the night fantastic !
Another great experience all around, from cocktails & wine to the food complimented by the energetic atmosphere. Staff was very gracious & knowledgeable in helping us decide between specific options which were perfect to our tastes. Thank you! ~ Jessica
Shinsei is our go to restaurant for Asian fusion. Always consistently terrific in every way. We love these guys and have been frequent patrons for the past seven years.
We had the chef’s pairings and each new dish was better than the last. We were honestly satisfied after the first round but could Not stop eating as everything was so perfect and delicious! Impeccable service and beautiful restaurant. We both said, we need to eat here more!
Due to my usual last minute planning had not been able to get a weekend reservation to Shinsei on several tries over last couple of years. Decided to use mid-week birthday dinner as an opportunity to try again. Made reservation on Monday night for a 7:45 pm (earliest available) Wednesday night slot. Restaurant was completely packed on arrival, however, our table for two was being cleared and cleaned as we arrived--so no wait. Service is a little bit confusing in that waiter seems to only take order and bring bar drinks. Runners bring food and fill water/tea. Somewhere in that mix, our appetizer edamame never arrived--at least not before all of our main course sushi had arrived and we were half way through it. That was also first time waiter checked on us at which point we decided it was too late for edamame and asked him to take it off the bill, which he did with no problems and an apology. The sushi was spectacular--some of the best quality we've tasted in Dallas. Tried out the premium sake tasting flight at $25. Waiter identified each one by name, but other than that--no information on them or suggestion on the order to try them. The sakes were fine--but maybe not worth the price without some sizzle to go along with it; we might as well have just ordered a couple full sized glasses. We did not order any other food besides sushi, but based on the taste of the sushi alone, we would recommend and come back.
I love mackerel and the presentation was simply amazing! Wish I had remembered to take a photo. Everything ordered was fresh and delicious. We made reservations but decided to eat at the sushi bar for a change and will do that in the future because we were able to see food prep up close. I recommend this restaurant for any occasion. Call or use Opentable for reservations. Plan on valet parking.
Our favorite sushi restaurant! Everything was excellent!
We've been going here for years and it never disappoints. Be sure and try the short rib dumplings, amazing!
Good pot stickers
Great food, we always have the best service.
Food is great and good overall. But manager were not friendly and did not accommodate requests
The food was terrific and waiter knowledgeable. Particularly liked the tuna tartare on rice cake, cured fennel salmon, wild mushrooms and broccolini. Only ho hum one was Chilean sea bass. Not crispy/caramelized enough.
Food was outstanding. It was loud and crowded at 6:30/7:00. We didn't know it was half-price bottle of wine night so that surely contributed. Waiter was very good under the super busy circumstances. Valet guys were awesome.
Shinsei is a fine restaurant without the pretention. Great for drinks or dinner. Service and food are always the best!
Service and dinner were both excellent as usual. There were six of us and we ordered all plates to share for the table. The restaurant was really busy when we got there at 6:30 and it never let up. That definitely added to the very loud noise level
Loved our waitress! Food was exceptional. Unique dishes prepared with detail to perfection! In my opinion one of the best restaurants in Dallas.
Clearly, if you are not one of the young , beautiful people, you relegated to upstairs! The tempura was soggy but the sushi/sashimi is very tasty.
Everything we ordered was great. My husband said the fried rice was the best he has had since he was stationed in Asia 40 years ago.
Neighborhood gem. we have been coming for years and the service by the staff from top to bottom is awesome. the food is wonderful. always fresh. the wine list is great. half price wine on Monday's is a big hit.
the kids love it too!
Excellent food. Excellent experience. As usual.
